The future of TV according to Kevin Spacey

“Give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in at a reasonable price and they more likely pay for it than steal it.” That is in short what Kevin Spacey thinks tv should give to people in order to survive. Spacey also predicts that any differentiations between platforms will disappear saying that “the device and the length are irrelevant, the labels are useless” meaning that the more or less artificial difference between a TV show or film will disappear.

It seems that Spacey is not on only a good actor but also a true visionary when it comes to streaming content.

Kevin Spacey shared his thoughts in the James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festival on on 22 August 2013
